Huge sigh of relief

I've been desperate to update my MacBook Pro for ages.

So was hanging out for the launch of the new one.

But after all the talk about the USB-C ports I've decided to wait.

Now it seems help is at hand with the HyperDrive 5-1 Hub.

The clever piece of kit is sure to prove popular as it features 5 ports to add slots for an SDXC, a microSDXC, 2 USB 3.0, and an additional USB Type-C port.

What's cooking on TV?

How cute is this spot for Canal pay TV?

When you stop and think about it, it must be pretty tough trying to get kids TV and sports and adult entertainment all into the same ad.

So kudos to Canal and their team for pulling it off!

The Flying Passenger

Good to have the crazy Volvo Trucks team back on the interwebs.

Take a break

Nice change of pace from Nike.

I've been out of the office for a week filming.

No idea what I've missed while I've been away.

Guess I'll find out when I go back in the office on Tues.

Yesterday's advertising

Two years ago this was a clever ad.

Today it doesn't work any more because Apple killed off the 'slide to unlock' feature.

Amazing the unexpected impact of technological change.

Don't you think?

Words at work

Nothing I love more than beautifully set type.

Sadly it's a dying art. Especially online.

But it's very important to me.

If only clients cared about it as much as I do.

More Community cycling

 Got an email last night about the bike helmets campaign by The Community I posted yesterday.

Seems the agency has a thing about bikes and cycling.

Case in point this cute campaign to promote cycling in Buenos Aires.

Surprised I hadn't seen it before given it won the Print Grand Prix at Cannes last year!

Nutcase helmets

What I love about these ads by Miami agency The Community is they show the benefit rather than the product.

They're bloody eye catching too.

But if I head into my bike shop how do I go about recognising the Nutcase helmets?

After all they all look pretty much the same.

Or perhaps that's the point?

A preposterous video

Guaranteed that at least one of the absurdities featured in this fun film will turn up in an ad within the next twelve months.
